Participatory Constitution Making Process - Participatory Constitution Building in Nepal Booklet Series No. 10
PDF File Size: 282 KB | Download   
A constitution is the primary law of a state. All laws are based on it. It establishes the structure, functions, procedures, powers, and duties of a government. A constitution also identifies the rights held by citizens. A constituent assembly is used to ensure citizen ownership over the constitution and to establish a strong relationship between the citizens and the state.
A Participatory Constitution Making Process brings together citizens to draft a constitution that addresses critical issues facing their nation. A participatory constitution making process enables citizens to have ownership over the constitution while feeling part of a building a nation. The process must educate the public about the role of the constitution and the sometimes complex choices that must be made. The Rules guide the CA through its dual mandate of drafting the constitution and acting as a legislative body. These Rules call for the creation of a Constitutional Committee, ten thematic committees to address substantive issues such as individual rights, federalism, and an independent judiciary, and three procedural committees to draft a participatory constitution.
